As a Facilitator, I am Committed to

  • Symposium Presenter
  • Symposium Host
  • Symposium Producer
  • Community Coordinator
  • Facilitator Training Leader

When I participated in my first Symposium in 2006 I had a vision of transformation occuring in the region where I live catalysed by the Symposium. I imagined walking down the street and having conversations with my neighbours about how to live more sustainably, and celebrating our successes. I imagined a wave of transformation occuring across our shire in relation to how people shopped and lived and related to each other.  Now years later I see this coming into being.  I believe in the power of having a vision and intention that is translated into action on a foundation of spiritual practices that help me keep remembering that we are all interconnected.

I've been a Facilitator since 2007. I have delivered 42 events with a total of 404 attendees.

Why I'm a Pachamama Alliance Facilitator

Every time I facilitate a Symposium it is a cleansing and healing experience for me. Facilitating a Symposium calls me into being - and provides a regular opportunity to clear the channels to allow the work of Pachamama to be expressed through me.  What a privilege and an honour!

If I could change the world

If I could change one thing in the world it would be having spiritual practices as the norm - spiritual practices that remind us that we are all interconnected and come from the same source - spiritual practices that quieten our left brain long enough for our right brain to be heard - imagine what transformation would occur across the planet if the norm was daily spiritual practices - in whatever form works for each person.  

This is who inspires me

The person who inspires me most is Nelson Mandela.  His unswerving commitment to a vision of one South Africa - throughout the 27 years in prison - and his capacity to forgive and inspire people to be there better selves is what the world needs more of.

Experiences I'm proud of

The one thing I am proud of is making the choice to follow my heart's calling and travel to the US and Ecuador, leaving behind a secure and well paid job to undertake a journey of discovery.  This choice has completely transformed my life and brought unimaginable joys and fulfillment.

What I'm passionate about

I am passionate about being part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

I want to play the role that is mine to play in being the change I want to see in the world.      Playing the role that I am called to play brings me deep joy and fulfillment in the present - and challenges that keep me growing.

In this way I am playing a part in creating the possibility of passing on a thriving, just and sustainable world for future generations to enjoy.
